storage doors

Hey all, anybody know of a source where I can purchase some steel doors so I can add some underbody storage?

Re: storage doors

try tri state salvage, an Ebay power seller, they deal in new old stock RV parts, they usually have compartment doors and frames from trailers, they probably wont be steel but they will have hinges and latches.
also check your local salvage yards for used truck tool boxes, usually the bottoms wear out first and unless someone has torn the doors off they are in pretty good shape.

Re: storage doors

Actually, that would be Tri-State Surplus...

There are a few other ebay sellers that have them too, Tri-State will have the lowest prices and the best choices from what I've seen. Once on ebay do a search for RV Compartment Door and you'll find a few other sellers. I highly recommend Tri-State as I've bought from them several times, they are good sellers and provide fast shipping...

Re: storage doors

Look into boneyards that might have truck toolboxes. The door assemblies can be removed from the boxes, and the whole box(es) may be mounted as-is.

If the box is rusted, take it to be sandblasted before repainting and install.
I bought a two-door sidemount boxfor a pickup for $30 at a yard, had it blasted, then I primed and painted it. It's on my truck as I speak...yeah it's rusty now, but it's been six's a work truck, after all.
The tool storage is nice, but where do I put the bed?

Re: storage doors

Hey if you have some money, there is a company that specializes in underbody storage called buyers. I bought one box for $250.00 and it is pretty nice. Brand new, weather sealed, powder coated steel. Its 4' X 18" X 18". heres some options. Like I said expensive but really nice boxes.
